Spanish newspaper Marca is reporting that Real Madrid have won the race to sign coveted teenager Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.
A world-record €180 million (£161 million) transfer is believed to be a done deal between the champions of Spain and France.
The report goes on to suggest €160 million has been paid up front, while a further €20 million in clauses and add-ons could eventually see the fee rise to €180 million.
Real Madrid have been in search of a striker since the departure of Alvaro Morata to Chelsea, though their interest in the French teenager dates well before Morata’s exit, with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Arsenal also continually linked with the player.
18-year-old Kylian Mbappe took the football world by storm last season, netting 15 times and assisting eight in Monaco’s Ligue 1-winning campaign, whilst also making a name for himself in their run to the Champions League Semi-Finals, scoring all six of his goals in the knockout stages of the competition.
